    Just an update - in addition to this clerk position, there's likely to be a full-time staff writer (w/ some desk work) position posted very soon.

    We'll try to fill both jobs at the same time.

    A friend with whom I played poker in Iowa City, and who got a kidney transplant a few years ago, is from Naperville. Those Iowa City days of the mid-90s were legend. Also in the poker group was my best friend, Naperville Phil's buddy who carried around a 12-gage shotgun, this dude Carlos from the Basque Country, who always claimed to be a Basque terrorist; he was a Spanish-looking version of Willem Dafoe; and this dude from Vancouver. So what does this have to do with the Naperville Sun? Not a damn thing. But the great thing about SJ is the connections it spawns. Seeing Naperville connects me to Iowa City and poker and staying up all night partying in the apartments above the Englert Theater with Phil while blasting Green Day's "Dookie" and Cypress Hill's "I Want to Get High" into the wee hours. Good times.

    It's a little known fact that the City of Naperville has more assholes per capita than any other town in the midwest.

    Carl's statistics aside, there are some pretty solid preps there. But the parents, whoo, boy.

    Another update - interviews for part-time position will be finishing up next week and decision on hire should come shortly after.

    Full-time position likely to be posted sometime in early to mid June.

    Just tell me when and my resume is in the mailbox. I'd love to work in the Chicago market.
